Framelits Friday with SSInk

Wondrous Wreath
For Framelits Friday I have a card for you using the wreath stamp set and matching framelits.  I absolutely love the "Joy" sentiment that comes with this adorable set.
I paired this card with the Hardwood Background Stamp to make it look like a door.  I love the way this turned out and hope you enjoy it too!

Christmas Cards with SSInk

Christmas Cards with SSInk
I know it's super early but I find the earlier I get started, the more cards I actually send out come December!  Maybe I should start writing them out as well?!  We made this card at my catalog launch at the end of August.  I love the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper and it just so happens to work perfectly with the trees!
Sorry this post is so short... I have a sinus issue going on and I had a long day at work!  Thanks for following me!

Special Feature: LOTS of Cards from my Customers

Customer Cards!
This is a special post for me today because all of these cards were made by my customers.  Some of the products used were not Stampin' Up! but that is just fine with me.  Card making is supposed to be fun and it doesn't matter to me where the products come from!

Hershey Nugget Treat Tutorial using Merry Everything with SSInk

Welcome to Stamp Sets with matching Punch Bundles!  My bundle is in the Holiday Catalog: Merry Everything!  I made one for each season so you can see the versatility of the bundle!
Are you wondering how you make these adorable Hershey Nugget treat holders?  Scroll down for more info...
Step One: Cut a piece of card stock 2" by 7 1/2".  Punch each end using one of the tag topper punches.
Step Two: Score each end at 3".
Step Three: Decorate, adhere candy using some snail, fold up and tie with ribbon.  It's that simple!

Thanks so much for following me!

Fab Friday 50th Anniversary

Fab Friday #50
It's our golden anniversary post over at Fab Friday!  This works perfect because my parent's just celebrated 50 years of marriage in August!
Here is the card I made for my parents!  When I was first thinking about this challenge, I was a little thrown off... just gold and white?!  LOL But then I realized I could do a card for my mom and dad!
Thanks so much for checking out my post!  Happy 50th Anniversary to my parents!  So proud of them for staying together despite all the ups and downs!  What a great example Marc and I have with both sets of our parents.  We are blessed!

SSInk Blog Hop: All Things Fall

 Welcome to our Monthly Blog Hop!
I am so happy that cooler weather is going to be coming (albeit much later than everyone else, it's still in the 90's in Tampa)!  With the cooler temps comes fall... which means Fall Cards!  I am so excited to share my projects with you today!!  We will be making the "treat" in my "Fall Treats" class on September 27th!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Darcy at Dj's Stampin' Place. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
For my first project I made a card and used the new Wood Elements.  I love these elements as they match the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper perfectly!  This "For All Things" stamp set is the perfect pairing for the fall season!
Are you wondering where I got this cute container?  The Gift Card Enclosure Pack comes in a pack of 10 enclosures!  Add 3 score lines and you have an awesome little box to put candy, gum, a gift card, anything really!  That in-color ribbon (in Mossy Meadow) is my favorite ribbon to play with... make sure you order some ASAP!

The tag features the Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape.  I love the patterns and the Blackberry Bliss is simply beautiful!

One Layer Cards with SSInk

Today's card is for Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration where we were making one-layer cards.  It's a really cute card and I will admit, I got my inspiration from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  Do you love the Washi Tape?  It's called "All is Calm" Designer Washi Tape.  There are six rolls (yes SIX) for only $7.95!
This stamp set was such a huge hit last year that it is back again this year!  It's called Endless Wishes and the words have the BEST font!  It comes with several different sizes of the snowflakes as well!  Super cute!  

See you tomorrow for our Monthly Blog Hop!
